Malungon wins allies in “education for all” campaign

 

Malungon wins allies in “education for all” campaign
MALUNGON, Sarangani (July 15, 2009) – The town’s performance and
implementation of Quality Education for Sarangani Today (QUEST)
project has been gaining more assistance from the private sector.
In his state of education address at the QUEST’s Education Road Show
and Summit on July 7, Mayor Reynaldo Constantino lauded private
sector-partnership by the local government in uplifting their
children’s education.
“However, looking carefully at the school’s unique and difficult
situations and circumstances, it’s totally a different story,”
Constantino said.
But Governor Migs Dominguez and the provincial government committed to
provide an additional 50 provincial-paid teachers “to ensure that
education reaches the town’s farthest schools”.
“Our promise is never to leave a single child behind in our quest for
education,” Dominguez said.
Cecile Dominguez, executive director of the Alcantara Foundation (AF)
said the provincial government together with the AF will provide
workbooks for all grade 1 pupils at 1:1 pupil-workbook ratio.
Sagittarius Mines Inc., who provided workbooks for Grade I last year,
will now provide workbooks for all Grade II pupils and manuals for
teachers.
UnionBank’s “As A Filipno” reading program which began last school
year continues its support by giving again workbooks for all Grade II
pupils, a story book per section, and lesson plan guide for the
teachers.
AF initiated and facilitates linkages for the Education for All (EFA)
campaign in Malungon and in the province with partners such as
Synergeia Foundation, Union Bank, Sagittarius Mines Inc. and the
Department of Education.
The QUEST project is a learning technology from Synergeia Foundation
implemented in Sarangani.
The day’s summit conducted plenary workshops for teachers and parents.
“Education starts at home,” Cecile Dominguez said.
Realizing that home is a very important foundation of education, QUEST
gives parent mentoring sessions and values formation workshops aside
from teachers’ trainings and workbook distributions.
“Let’s not waste time, let us support the government in their programs
and let us also support our children towards their future by checking
their progress in school,” Grade I parent Lalaine Decenorio said.
